“21st Century Sweet Soul Music”
“He’s like a mixture of Bobby McFerrin & Bob Marley with a little Phish, STS9 & Imogen Heap mixed in.”
“His sonic channel is clear, raw and unfiltered, as you can hear for yourself through his inspired improvs. He is a ONE MAN BAND and all the sounds that you hear are coming out of his mouth.”
“Melody after harmony after beat after riff, Cornflower takes the listener on a musical journey that is uplifting and unforgettable.”
